The best Indian restaurant in Vegas, this is an Off Strip favourite with the locals.

One of the things I most miss about the UK, living in Vegas, is the lack of Indian restaurants. Luckily, those that are here, are wonderful, and Origin India is the best. There's a huge menu ranging from street food to huge main courses, and although it's not given away, the prices are justified by the restaurant's top notch reputation. If you want to get off the Strip, this is a fine place to do it.

Food and drink

The wide-ranging menu covers everything from "street food" - small, simple dishes such as tandoor-baked and marinated chicken drumsticks, and fish pakora - to big main courses such as roasted striped sea bass marinated in coriander, cumin and lime. In between, of course, are curries - although, oddly, there aren't as many of them as you might assume. It's all excellent - it's been rated not just by locals, but by celeb chefs and foodie types visiting Vegas (TV cook Rachael Ray came here on a recent visit).

Ambience

 It's very quiet - there's not much of a buzz - and down to earth. You don't need to dress up here, and most of your fellow diners will be locals. 

Service

Fairly reserved but friendly nonetheless.

Location

 On Paradise Road near Harmon Avenue - right by the Hard Rock and Rumor hotels.

Price advice

Curries from US$11, starters from US$9 and mains from US$19.50. They also do regular deals - for October, for example, all vegetarian dishes are 20 per cent off, in celebration of National Vegetarian month - as well as the odd event - they recently had a fundraiser for the Pakistan flood victims.
